Easy Sugar cookies

My life has changed completely after the birth of my baby "Haroon". He is such a sweet little boy...yet a very demanding one who wants his mommy with him 24/7. He is going to be three months at the end of this month and I hope that things will start to get easier and more systemized as he is getting older.
So being wrapped up with his needs like feedings, diaper changes, acting silly so he will laugh and play in addition to being busy in preparing for the back to school stuff for my other two children, all of which didn't leave me much time to go into the kitchen and enjoy my beloved hobby. I have been on the move and looking for short cuts where ever and whenever I can. So when kids craved cookies, the simplest recipe I had was too complicated with Haroon crying and demanding that I carry him. So I stopped by this great and super easy recipe for sugar cookies using vanilla cake mix.
Cake Mix Sugar cookies
Ingredients:

1 package vanilla cake mix
1 tea spoon baking powder
2 eggs
1/2 Cup vegetable oil
1/2 tea spoon vanilla extract
1 Cup color sprinkles

Preheat oven to 175-180°. In a large bowl, mix together the cake mix and baking powder. In a small bowl, mix together the eggs, oil and vanilla. Add the egg mixture to the cake mixture and stir to combine. Stir in the sprinkles. Drop by spoonfuls onto a cookie sheet.
Bake for 10 minutes. Allow to cool for 5 minutes on cookie sheet before transferring to cooling rack.
